I just graduated and I miss this school. Along with being great it has a lot of fun activities you can get involved in. You are a lot of time in one classroom but you have awesome teachers with you!

ATS is a wonderful school. It took us about two years to get in from the lottery wait list, but it was worth the wait. Excellent visual art and music programs. We have been very pleased.

Not any better than any other Arlington school. My child went to another APS school then transfered to ATS, should have kept her where she was. Very overreated. A bit too much for our family

My son completed 5th grad this June at ATS. He transferred after Kindergarten. He had transferred from the Spanish immersion program at Claremont. While I regret ATS does not offer a consistent second language cirriculum, I believe, for my son, ATS was the better choice. He responded well the the structure ...  Read more

We are greatful that our now fifth grade son has attended ATS. He has had excellent teachers throughout. He has benefitted from the school's high expectations for academic performance and for behavior/character. ATS fosters a positive environment where children learn kindness and respect for one another ...  Read more
